Camping and Other Random Info

The course is all marked and ready to go! We are looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend at Bent Wheel Bash!

Remember, no reservations are necessary for camping. Just talk to the people at the gate and they’ll get you taken care of. Camping is $20 per site for one night or $30 for two nights. All other land use fees are taken care of in your race registration price. There are no hookups for campsites, but showers are available in the registration building.

Dogs are welcome at Bent Wheel Bash. The police academy (our venue) just requests that you keep them on a leash at all times. They also ask that you not have alcohol on police academy property. It’s an issue for them with the training facilities and insurance.

The Specialized Demo Van will be set up on Saturday from noon until 5. Make sure and stop by and test out their bikes!

The Toasted Traveler food truck will be set up on Saturday from 1:00 – 6:00 and on Sunday from 10:00 – 3:00.

The physical address for the academy is Warren Dodson Training Facility, 4557 East Lake Road, Abilene, TX 79601. If you are headed north on East Lake Road (FM 2833), the blue gate at the entrance will be on your right. If you reach County Road 503 (Neas Road), you have gone a little too far north.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us –
